Staff Bioinformatician position: Omics in Heart Disease

Heidelberg University
Institute for Computational Biomedicine


A full-time position for a staff bioinformatician is open in the group of Julio Saez-Rodriguez at Heidelberg University ( The position is part of the newly funded collaborative project CRC 1550 ‘Molecular Circuits of Heart Disease’.

You will perform a broad range of bioinformatic analyses on cutting-edge bulk and single-cell multi-omics (transcriptomic, proteomics,..) data sets generated within the CRC 1550 consortium and to coordinate expertise and work with the bioinformatic parts of the individual projects. This involves the complete workflow from experimental design to visualization and downstream analysis to get mechanistic insights into deregulated circuits such as cellular pathways. You will also be involved in training individual researchers, and work within an international and interdisciplinary group of scientists.

The positions is to be started as soon as possible and funded initially for two years with the possibility of extension into a long-term position. There is no strict deadline, but priority will be given to applications by June 30th 2022.


Candidates interested in using bioinformatics and machine learning to analyze omics data are encouraged to apply. You are expected to hold a PhD in bioinformatics or computational biology, or a degree in biological science with substantial experience in computational work.
